What is WebVR and what do I need for it?

What is WebVR?

WebVR is an industry-standard API for you to stream virtual reality content through your phone's web browser.

This means you can open a Matterport Space with 3D Showcase on your phone’s web browser, tap the VR button to enter VR, insert the phone into your headset, and enjoy.

No need to download an app to enjoy a Matterport VR Space.
